Bible Love Verses

Most people's idea of love is based on certain conditions they think another person, and sometimes even God must do, or not do in order for them to respond with love, but according to the Bible this is not the truth.

Now here's a clue.

Bible Love Verse #1

Proverbs 3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

And here's the problem.

You know those overwhelming feelings you get when someone does something bad to you.

Well that person not being aware of the truth can easily justify their wrong doing based on something they thought you did wrong or your attitude towards them.

It may not sound fair but the bibles definition of love is to set your mind to do what's right no matter if someone apologizes, feels remorseful, or even cares at all or not.

Bible Love Verse #2

Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

This would make your love unconditional.

And by doing this God will take care of the rest at the appropriate time in your favor.

Bible Love Verse #3

Proverbs 19:11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.

But it takes a considerable amount of study to renew your mind, so you can get it to come out of your mouth in order to change how you respond in extreme situations like that.

And I'll even let you in on a little secret.

Learning to practice love is like riding a bike, you're probably going to fall and scrape up your knees for a while but once you get the hang of it you can just get on and go.

Bible Love Verse #4

Proverbs 17:9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

When I first began to practice love I remember how I imagined a scenario that would make it ok for me to forgive something someone did wrong to me.

I even prayed about it and everything.

But when it didn't turn out the way I imagined it should I didn't respond in love and fell and scraped my knees.

I'm not all the way there but now that I understand that being compassionate, merciful, and forgiving is what love truly is I find myself being able to not dwell on the hurt that gets done to me in order to focus on the goodness of God by responding in love.

Bible Love Verse #5

Jesus even said.

Matthew 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
